Volunteer with Malama Maunalua for the 48th Earth day 

Join our Community Huki on April 21st

Since the creation of earth day in 1970, specific environmental issues become highlighted and this year, the 2018 theme is “ending plastic pollution.”  Did you know the great pacific garbage patch floating between Eastern Japan and the Western United States contains 3.5 million tons of trash and plastic constitutes 85% of the garbage floating in this “trash gyre?”  Cleaning up our oceans and decreasing the amount of plastic getting into our marine environments begins at home.

That’s why since its inception, Mālama Maunalua has dedicated its efforts to improving the health of Maunalua Bay through
habitat restoration and the eradication of invasive algae species. Every month we invite the public to join us at
a Comnunity Huki where you’ll learn about the three main types of invasive alien algae and then head into the bay
to remove those species from the nearshore waters.

Our next community huki takes place Saturday, April 21st and we’d love for you to join us – please click here for details!
